Among the passengers were transport-planners, policymakers, and public transport service users, all of whom participated in the ‘Shotl Experience’, a one-day showcase of the Shotl plattform. The event was organized as part of the annual gathering of the PTP Association, a local non-profit that’s devoted to the encouragement of sustainable transportation.
During the event, an on-demand shuttle service connected the venue with three different subway stations; providing a real-time demand responsive transport solution to enhance the overall commuting experience.
As Ricard Riol, president of the PTP Association, said: “It was great to have Shotl with us at the event. We thought that offering an on-demand shuttle was an excellent opportunity to show how public transport can cover more and more areas in the future. With this technology it is possible to cover a greater area while keeping low waiting and travel times for users, by reducing the ‘empty kilometers’ traveled in comparison to a traditional bus line”.
This event was part of a series of showcases that Shotl organizes periodically. If you’re interested in hosting a ‘Shotl Experience’ in the near future please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Shotl we’re proud advocates of sustainable and inclusive mobility and we endeavor to support all initiatives which uphold these values. We recently signed the "Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities" agreement, together with other renowned organizations like C40 Cities, ICLEI Local Governments for Sustainability, the Institute for Transportation & Development Policy (ITDP) and the WRI Ross Centre for Sustainable Cities.
Shotl is also a proud supporter of the MaaS Manifesto. An initiative by MaaS Catalonia which advocates a new mobility paradigm capable of delivering value for both the individual commuter and for the city as a whole.
After our successful deployment in the neighborhood of Can Barata, which has transported more than 8000 people since July 2017, Sant Cugat city council asked us to launch a second service in Les Planes.
2021 has been a year full of news and new deployments. Now, Shotl looks forward to welcoming a new year that promises to be even more exciting, with the promise of growth and great things to come.
